Ja Morant

Despite the fact that he's only been a member of the Grizzlies for five seasons, assuming he can stave off serious injuries and unnecessary off-court troubles moving forward, with the trajectory he currently finds himself on the number 12 will be hanging in the rafters at FedEx Forum by the time Ja Morant's comes to an end.

When healthy, the point guard has already proven himself to be one of the most electrifying talents the game has to offer.

Since being selected second overall back in the 2019 NBA Draft, Morant has come across a plethora of top-billed accolades, including a Rookie of the Year award, the league's Most Improved Player award, two All-Star nods, and an All-NBA selection.

On top of this, he has helped guide the club to three postseason berths, a Play-In Tournament appearance in year one when Memphis was initially projected to be a bottom-feeder, and the organization's only two division championships in 2021-22 and 2022-23, respectively.

As things currently stand, at just 24 years old Morant ranks in as the eighth all-time leading scorer for the team with 5,783 total points and fourth all-time in assists with 1,903.

Frankly, not only is this man on pace to see his jersey retired but, if things continue at this rate, he could realistically finish as the greatest Grizzlies player of all time.
